Rustic Charm


Penders Barn
Penders Barn
This charming New South Wales home captures the essence of its surroundings and is perfect for the winter season. Get all the home inspiration you need from this rustic abode.

Built in 2010, Pender’s Barn combines traditional design elements and reclaimed materials with modern-day comforts. Located in the Crackenback Valley, New South Wales, this rustic home is both charming and comfortable. 

The open living area is perfect for warming up on a cold winter’s day. Featuring stone walls, beautiful timber floors, a fireplace that commands attention, and large glass panels and windows that overlook the landscaped gardens, visitors instantly feel relaxed and at home.

For colour inspiration, owner Sonja Schatzle just looks out the window, “I take reference from anything in the environment from tree trunks to alpine grasses.” When sourcing her paint she ensures she likes “their colour selection and  environmental considerations.”
